When Strawberries Bloom: Book Review

About The Book:


New love and even more questions enter Lizzie Glick's life in When Strawberries Bloom, the second novel in this series written by an Amish writer and based on true life experiences.

Lizzie's dream of teaching school has finally come true. She loves the brand-new school building, the sound of the children singing, and the independence she has in the classroom. Even the occasionally unruly boys can't ruin the excitement she feels each morning when she starts the school day.

But at home things are in turmoil again. What do Dat's sudden health problems mean for the future of their farm? And what about Lizzie's future? Emma and Mandy are so certain that Joshua and John are their perfect matches, but Lizzie doesn't know what to think about Stephen and how he might fit into her life.

What will Lizzie decide? Will she continue to teach school? Or will she give up that dream so that her wish for marriage and a family can come true?

Stephen says he loves her, but Lizzie isn't sure he really understands her. Can she hope to find anyone within her Amish community who loves her bright mind, her ever-active imagination, her competitive spirit and her stormy humor? 

Includes 10 of Lizzie's favorite Amish recipes

About The Author:

Linda Byler grew up Amish and is an active member of the Amish church today. Growing up, Linda loved to read and write. In fact, she still does. She is well known within the Amish community as a columnist for a weekly Amish newspaper. Linda and her husband, their children, and grandchildren live in central Pennsylvania.

My Review:

I loved this second book in the Lizzie Searches For Love series from Linda Byler. It is very well written, and we are reaquainted with all the characters from the first book, and introduced to a few new ones. A fantastic read for any fan of Amish Fiction. I absolutely loved the Amish Recipes included and cannot wait to try a few of them. The next book, Big Decisions, is due out in March 2011 and I cannot wait to read it.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.

BUY IT: You can purchase When Strawberries Bloom online through Amazon.com and Amazon.ca - it is also available through your local Christian bookseller.
